Subject: It's all because the bully kept stealing his smokes
Interesting drama about a guy who increasingly gets snippy at work and at home and is shipped off to a psych hospital. Unlike the delirious "Psychiatric Hospital", this guy's stay is a cakewalk, with the gentler approach seen. Interesting, probably used more for families then anything (though there's more focus on occupational therapy then normal, but why would they show this to employees?) This really glosses over everything, and is not TOTALLY valuable, but it does show a great breakdown.

Subject: Back to Life
Interesting tale about a fellow who suffers from schizophrenia, and how it affects his life. Some of the acting isn't too good, but oh well.
